Avalon/Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update June 9th, 2016

45,000 CUBIC YARDS of sand have already been moved during Avalon’s sand backpassing project, designed to rebuild and protect the borough’s north end beaches. The project is nearly finished and will conclude no later than June 10th. A major hydraulic beach fill (dredging) project is anticipated after the 2016 beach season.
RESTAURANT WEEK runs through Sunday, June 12th. Dozens of Island restaurants are participating, and offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner specials.  Visit your favorites, or try out a couple of new places! Check the list of participating restaurants and their schedules here:

A pair of ospreys took up residence atop this Stone Harbor home’s chimney.  When not in the nest, the ospreys spend time perched at the top of a nearby flagpole.

CHELSEA PLACE PARK in Stone Harbor will celebrate a grand reopening on June 17th at 9:30am, after a complete makeover.  New slides, swings, and other playground equipment will make the park a favorite among children. Adults will enjoy sitting on a bench in the shade, or a stroll around the walking path. Chelsea Place Park is located between 105th & 106th Streets, between Second & Third Avenues.
AVALON BAY PARK MARINA has been dredged to improve boat access, and is now open to boaters through the summer. Additional areas of the marina and adjacent navigation channel will be dredged in the fall.
THE CAPE MAY-LEWES FERRY fleet is back at full strength as the MV Delaware returns to service after a $3.5 million, five month engine replacement. The Delaware’s new engines will cut fuel consumption and emissions by 40%. Grants are expected to pay for future upgrades to the MV New Jersey and the MV Cape Henlopen as well. The Cape May-Lewes Ferry operates up to a dozen round trips across Delaware Bay each day during the height of the season.
THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS on the Island offer nearly everything you’ll find during the height of the summer, but without the crowds!  The beaches are delightful, the fishing is good, restaurants and shops are open, and the excitement of another summer season is here!  Take advantage of a couple of quiet weeks before the peak season (and crowds!) are here!
FROM $199,000 to $10 MILLION, there’s something for every budget on Seven Mile Island!  Whether you’re looking for a getaway condo or a mansion by the sea, let’s work together to make it happen!  There’s still time to complete your purchase and enjoy the summer in your new shore home!
